So you have a friend or a younger relative...

...who thinks she wants to be a non-profit professional when she grows up. Or let's say when he graduates from college, or maybe after grad school. If you've been in this field for any length of time this scenario is probably familiar. Where do you steer them?

TO LAW SCHOOL!! OR A CIVIL SERVICE EXAM! AND THEY'RE HIRING AT THE CAR WASH, RUN BOY RUN LIKE THE --- okay sorry for that interruption, my father-in-law surprised me and snagged the keyboard. He's rather nimble for an insurance man actually...Anyhow there are a few resources out there that might be helpful. For example here is an online listing of university programs in not-for-profit management, it covers undergraduate, graduate and continuing-education, current as of 2002 and searchable by state. That link came from ARNOVA's links list which is easily the best I've seen in this subject area.

Of all the listserv type resources aimed at non-profit folks (of which there are many now), perhaps the best I've come across yet is the ArtsJournal.com free weekly newsletter. It includes news links and job listings and fellowship opportunities and so forth, for all arts sectors with a nice balance between breadth and readability, and the editor puts some rather impudent headlines on article links. I haven't yet found a really good compilation of non-profit blogs; the biggest thus far is the Non-Profit Blog Exchange but it makes no attempt to sort its listed blogs by type or subject area.
